THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES
The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest academic honour in Ireland.Read more about the RIA
Publications Digital Exhibitions
When the Royal Irish Academy had to close its doors to protect the public from COVID-19, we put together our exhibitions virtually so that people could still enjoy them while staying safe. We have decided to keep our exhibitions live on our website permanently, so that you can visit them at any time and from everywhere in the world.
